ADL are particularly well suited for component-based model frameworks that support hierarchical composition, such as DEVS with coupled models. In this paper we present some features found in the ADL of another hierarchical component model, namely the Fractal Component Model (FCM). To our best knowledge, these features are not yet available in most of the current DEVS implementations. Using a few examples coming from our experience, we demonstrate the usefulness of these features for Modeling & Simulation and their potential relevance for inclusion in a future DEVS implementation standard.
